My Spring Fling: Lets make games!

Howdy Springish jammers.

I really wanted to keep my One jam a month 2018 streak going and will use this jam as the platform for my March run!  So thank you for the opportunity to jam with ya'll.

I'm pretty sure I will be trying to remake an old project of mine about ornery farm animals in Unity instead of Game Maker, but I'll solidify my work process tomorrow.  Today was just trying to find the right jam for me.

Happy March and I'm looking forward to playing some games at the end of the month <3

Nice! It's awesome that you're keeping a year-long streak going! 

Thanks for joining us, and I can't want to see what you've got in store!

Wanted to get something done before the end of the weekend, so I got the parallax in place.  Its an endless runner and making setting that kinda thing up felt important.  Plus now that the programming for it is out of the way I wont have to touch it again till I have new art.  The GIF does not loop properly but that just to keep it small, trust me it works fine in game.  Ran into a funky issue while coding that caused a gap between BG assets early on and only just came to a mid break realization that I hadn't tried reorganizing the code a little and it fixed it.

Spent the better part of the day getting my other main elements going.  Jump functions on the mouse clicks so that I can build a mobile version.  Pink stuff for the win!

Looks interesting!
When she was in Scottland, my Sister saw pink(!) sheeps from time to time. A little girl explained to her that those were male sheeps, and the color was used to find out with which female sheeps they mated.

Instead of shooting the sheep, you could be a male sheep making female-sheeps pink - or the other way around. Might make more sense than shooting the sheep :-D

(being a sheperd's dog and trying to turn the sheeps around might also be a nice angle.)


I currently try to distribute lots of nature in an existing game of mine - will find out if that works :-)

Thats a pretty adorable reason for pink sheep joc-wi, sadly there will continue to be a mini-gun in this; though you did remind me that I wanted to post a gif of the first version of this game I did almost 6 years ago now in Game Maker.

I had so much fun creating it and its always stayed a part of what I wanted to release onto a mobile title.  Remaking it in Unity is a challenge but its been keeping my head in a good programming space.  Here's an update with where I'm at now

Some juice added, lots more still needed; but it makes me nostalgic to see the game coming together a little.  Already testing its deployment to the phone too and it runs with rather smoothness!

I'm sorry I haven't been responding to this thread! It's been an eventful month lol.

I love this concept to death! Gotta get those sheep! I especially love the cow with the minigun in the original version.

@angelbait: Do you have problems getting graphics for the new one?
